Wow, Ysolda Teague's Peak's Island Hood is one of the most popular newly published designs on Ravelry. Â And she's created it with one of our favorite yarns, Green Mountain Spinnery Mountain Mohair. Â We could go on forever about this beautiful yarn but Clara Parkes has said it all in her Knitter's Review article. Â Sure, you could sub lots of other fibres for Ysolda's hooded scarf, but nothing else has quite the same virtues as Mountain Mohair. Â A blend of wool and silky soft yearling mohair from a small Vermont spinnery, this yarn is light as a feather, warm, hard-wearing (no pilling), knits in a wide range of gauges, and comes in an array of gently heathered colours. Â As Clara says, this yarn requires a small leap of faith as it doesn't truly come into its own until its been knitted and washed. Â Stop by and have a look at the full selection of colours. Â Four skeins makes the Peak's Island Hood. Â And, if you'd like to see another amazing project knit with Mountain Mohair, take a look at Knotty-Knitter's Raven Tunic on Ravelry.Â Â We saw it in person the other day, stunning!
